Islamabad [Pakistan], Jan 2 (ANI): Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan on Tuesday took reference to the Indian Film Industry to celebrate him being granted bail in all the four cases regarding an attack on Pakistan Television (PTV) headquarters in 2014.

Driving inspiration from the Bollywood movie 'My name is Khan,' the Khan in question resorted to a Twitter post that reeked of a theatrical narrative as it read the movie's famous dialogue, "My name is Khan and I am not a terrorist."

"My name is Khan and I am not a terrorist. Moreover, the SC has pronounced me Sadiq and Ameen and I am coming after them crooks!," Khan posted on the micro-blogging site.

An anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Islamabad accepted the pre-arrest bail appeal of PTI chief, reported the Dawn, on Tuesday.

Earlier, the cricketer-turned-politician, told the media outside the court after the ruling, "The decision proves that I am sadiq (truthful) and ameen (righteous), not a terrorist, I am a ladla [darling] of the law because I abide by it."

The PTI chief took the occasion to take a potshot at former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and added, "Nawaz Sharif could not have withstood half of the scrutiny that I went through. I've never stolen anything in my life."

According to the media reports, in August 2014, supporters of the PTI and its ally Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) allegedly attacked properties in Islamabad's Red Zone including those of state institutions. They were also charged with attacking the then Islamabad SSP Operations Asmatullah Junejo. (ANI)
